I disagree with it because on a whole Zimbabwe is not a dangerous place and her citizens do not live in fear of losing their lives. Yes, Zimbabwe is experiencing a few problems at the moment but Zimbabweans are more worried about getting by than going out and causing chaos. Most of the violence that has taken place has been perpetrated by people with strong political affiliations. When situations have turned violent, these events have been isolated and died down pretty quickly.
I don’t like seeing Zimbabwe being included on the list of the world’s most dangerous destinations. Even if it is only ranked as a ‘Control Risk’, being branded as a dangerous destination is enough to further tarnish the image of a nation. If someone was to see a country they intend on traveling to on such a list it would be a big deterrent for them visiting regardless of what kind of a risk it is said to pose.
Various nations worldwide have warned their citizens against traveling to Zimbabwe, a step which I see as being a little extreme. A few tourists still do visit Zimbabwe and come out unscathed with pleasurable memories and hopefully a different perspective of life. On the whole Zimbabweans are peaceful people and Zimbabwe does not deserve to be branded as a dangerous destination.
